Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Can ALS affect the mind as well as the body?

  • While ALS can have a devastating physical affect on the body, it does not affect one's intellectual reasoning, vision, hearing or sense of taste, smell, and touch. In most cases, sexual, bowel, and bladder functions are also unaffected.
